I don't recall if this Texaco Van has been posted yet...I don't think so. Wonder if it's an original Texaco restoration?

More Econolines in the Air Force. Seems those E-Pups were popular with the Security Police.

Here's another neat shot of some rentals, a van on the end. This looks like an old Ryder headquarters judging from the elaborate building.

He probably left a note on someone's door saying "Sorry, I missed you, I'll be back tomorrow sometime between 9 am and 4 pm... Suspect

Maybe it's still sitting in that field and was just a convenient place to hang the birds? Wink Looks like an old work van parked in the back 40

I don't know Seth, looks like there's freshly cut grass or whatever under it. Couldn't have been there that long. Plus judging from that guy's hat...I think is an old picture.

Here's another U-haul Van...I don't think this one has been posted yet. Maybe it was AZSupervan Van in a previous life!

You may be right Brent, but some of us just wear old hats! He's also got a bolt action shotgun. Not too many people use those anymore.

I can just hear him saying "My name is Elmer J. Fudd, millionaire, I own a mansion and a yacht!!!" Sorry, flashback to my childhood watching way too many Looney Tunes!
